Sent off an e-mail to UKTV Gold about this, they did reply but stated that they had no plans to show it at the moment.

Shame, as I really did used to love these and not all of them are on YouTube.

There's no CC: Blackadder either!

A couple of them are on DVD sets: Perrin, Red Dward, Office, Father Ted, Keeping up Appearances.

Another question: Did anyone keep the subtitle stream? I have good copies of the episodes that interest me, but at the time I didn't think of doing anything about the subtitles. But now I find that there are more hard of hearing people than I thought.

Been rewatching some of these the last few weeks, what a wonderful documentary series this was, this could definitely come back again. There are much more sitcoms left to cover.

I always thought it would be interesting to do a series like this focusing on some more obscure sitcoms. In some cases it might not even be that much different, you could focus on sitcoms with the same writers or leads as ones that got episodes dedicated to them here. It would be fascinating to hear about some of the more forgotten series in detail.

So things like Brush Strokes as an example? It's not Esmonde and Larbey's most known sitcom is it.

Yeah, could be. As it goes Mulberry, also written by Esmonde and Larbey and starring Howman, is one I'd like to hear more about. There's a video on YouTube of Larbey talking about how it would've ended if it got a third series and he starts to tear up as he's describing it, it clearly meant a lot to him.
